I don't see the relevance of the boot stage here, but if you wanna load a kernel module from a floppy: # mount_msdosfs /dev/fdc0 /mnt # sysctl kern.module_path="/boot/kernel;/boot/modules;/mnt" # kldload mymodulename /dev/fdc0 being your floppy drive device. -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
